Description

"I'm Black and I'm Proud": Black Pride and Black Queer Life in DC

Lecture starts promptly at 7pm.

Black LGBT Pride Celebrations (hereinafter referred to as Black Pride) in the United States exist in contradistinction to “general” LGBT Pride Celebrations. Black Pride Celebrations are a collection of events meant to celebrate and address the specific issues of local Black LGBT people and highlight Black LGBT and allied businesses and creatives. They are organized by a diverse group of Black local stakeholders. In this lecture, I discuss the history of Black Pride Celebrations, the first of which was held right here in Washington, DC. I also discuss the Black queer communities which gave birth to it. I’ll share bits about my current research project that is actively working to collecting archival material related to Black Pride Celebrations. Got old photos, posters, pamphlets, or other material from Black Pride? Bring them!
